Ty Burr’s Movie Club— Cinema Paradiso (Director’s Cut)

July 11 @ 9:00 pm - July 12 @ 1:00 am

$20

Please join us for the first meeting of Ty Burr’s Movie Club!

Each month, Ty Burr, former film critic and cultural columnist at The Boston Globe and Pulitzer Prize finalist, will host a screening of one of his favorite movies, followed by a group discussion.

For the inaugural meeting of the Movie Club, the West Newton Cinema will be showing the director’s cut of Cinema Paradiso, a film celebrating the magic of the movies and cinema’s enduring power to create community. Originally released in the United States in 1990, Cinema Paradiso won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. The director’s cut, released in 2002, brings this cherished classic back to the silver screen— with a twist!

Join Ty for a wonderful film and interesting conversation! Your participation supports our efforts to preserve this beloved local theater.

The screening begins at 6pm, with discussion immediately following. Tickets can be purchased here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/ty-burrs-movie-club-cinema-paradiso-directors-cut-tickets-933920199457?aff=oddtdtcreator

About the movie:

Young Salvatore Di Vita (Salvatore Cascio) discovers the perfect escape from life in his war-torn Sicilian village: the Cinema Paradiso movie house, where projectionist Alfredo (Philippe Noiret) instills in the boy a deep love of films. When Salvatore grows up, falls in love with a beautiful local girl (Agnese Nano) and takes over as the Paradiso’s projectionist, Alfredo must convince Salvatore to leave his small town and pursue his passion for filmmaking. (Rotten Tomatoes)

Directed by Giuseppe Tornatore. Score composed by Ennio and Andrea Morricone.
